    I have a Canon 35-80mm kit lens that I broke. I was trying to pry off the UV filter and well didn't realize how strong I was snapped the darn thing in two pieces. Don't worry I haven't attempted this on any other lens since. My question since this is a 7yr old kit lens should I just toss it in the trash??? :raisedbrow: :cry: The one and only time I regret my decision to work out an loose weight. :confused:

    Toss it.

    Next time use a filter wrench.

    This is exactly why I keep telling my wife that I shouldn't go to the gym! My 65 year-old arthritic hands might just tear something expensive apart!

    Very good excuse! I need to use that one too. After all, I only need enough strength to crack open a beer. :mrgreen:

    Don't worry lesson learned. :confused: I will be getting a filter wrench. At least it was a 7yr old kit lens and not the lens I have just paid over $700. for. I guess it could have cost me more.

    I'm glad you brought this up though. I will be going to buy me a fliter wrench today because I can see myself doing the exact same thing.
